Many people who travel to New York have ideas of happy hour being synonymous with the bustling, busy city. Dwellers use this magical time to unwind after a long day at work or to get started on a fun weekend. When looking to have a good time in Manhattan, many people often think of the festive environment of Mexican establishments serving spicy cuisine and tangy margaritas. Each resident often swears by their absolute favorite place for tequila happy hours. Below are some great places to start your night off right for wallet-friendly, delicious and wild drinks that can be shared with old and new friends.
With a name like Cowgirl, this restaurant does not sound like your typical margarita joint. But those in know understand that this might be one of the best places to unwind after a long day of sightseeing or hitting the books. Every day from 4 to 6 PM, Cowgirl offers a selection of delicious libations that people can enjoy. Grab a classic frozen lime drink or, if feeling adventurous and silly, try one of their drinks served in in a cowboy boot glass. Paired with a giant plate of some of their signature nachos it doesn’t get any better than this in the city.
This is quite the place to have a party. Large groups often dominate Florencia 13 to celebrate special occasions or to just have a blast. If you’re looking to impress your friends order one of the signature flaming margaritas that comes to your table on fire. Guests can grab this and other varieties for half-price every day from 4 to 7 PM during their lively and fun happy hour.
Nestled in the streets of Manhattan’s West Village, Agave is well known for their delectable and cheap margaritas. People will hail taxis from all over just to indulge in one of these great mixes. Impress your date by bringing them to Agave before dinner, as happy hour drinks at the bar cannot be beat. Or, feel free to stick around and try one of their delicious dishes, such as the duck enchiladas.
Sometimes travelers and even locals will get anxious over making the happy hour specials in time. If this is the case, Tortaria is the perfect place to always order a five dollar margarita, which is the specialty all day long. The best part, though, might be that this restaurant has a no-frills policy when it comes to the perfect margarita concoction. Purists will appreciate their fresh ingredients and simple yet delicious drinks.
